Fibroids & Acupuncture


Fibroids & Acupuncture

A Fibroid is well-known disease in the women's field. A uterine-fibroid grows in the wall of uterus known as myoma. It can grow from tiny size to large size. More than 8 cm, doctor's recommend a surgery to remove a fibroid. 

Fibroids are not cancerous myoma and can cause so many symptoms such as[1],[2]

- heavy periods
- prolonged periods.
- painful periods
- bleeding between periods
- back pain
- frequent urination 
- other symptoms

Currently, we don't know the causes of fibroid, a female hormone such as oestrogen is related to the growth of fibroids.

How acupuncture can help fibroids

Acupuncture is all about manipulating Energy(氣-기,Chi, Qi) flows. In the Eastern Medicine (including Tradition Chinese Medicine), we see the fibroids are caused by stagnation of Energy and Blood. In details, these kind of masses are caused by emotional fluctuation, energy and blood stagnation, foods, phlegm-damp stagnation, imbalance of hot and cold, low good energy and high bad energy.[3] 

Acupuncture helps removing the causes of fibroids by helping circulation of Energy and Blood in our body.  However, once the fibroid forms and the size of fibroids is bigger than 7~8 cm, we recommend a surgery to remove it. Acupuncture may help to reduce the size of fibroids. However it would take more time and we cannot guarantee the reduction of size.  

In additions, Gui Zhi Fu Ling Wan, one of well-know herbal medicine, has effective to reduce the size of fibroids in animal studies[4].  This herbal formula has been used to treat fibroids for a long time.

Our goal is to reduce the fibroid as well as to balance hormone(Yin&Yang) which is causing the fibroid growth. We recommend at least 3 months acupuncture & herbal medicine treatment to check whether it is effective or not.

Backpain and Acupuncture


Back pain can be caused by many reasons, Most people think that they hurt their muscles, or they make a wrong posture. I don't have any argument about that. However, you might think a different way: your back become less stronger than before.  Back pain can be caused by structural issues such as spine degeneration, disc protrusion. Osteoporosis, etc.  However, in the Eastern Medicine, we think there are some stagnation so that Energy and Blood (氣血) do not flow freely.  Acupuncture moves Energy and Blood (氣血) to help easing pain on your body such as back pain.



PAIN - Whole Body Pain & Numbness

Generally, pain is caused by Energy and Blood (氣 and 血) stagnation. It can be described with many different words such as dull ache, sharp pain, numbness, tingling, etc. Especially, numbness and tingling in the whole body cause by Energy and Blood stagnation. In the Eastern Medicine, Energy and Blood circulate well in our body we do not have pain. However, We get some kinds of pain if Energy and Blood are not circulate well. 


Basically, you can do exercise, yoga, good diet, ...   to solve this pain. Or you also can take pain killer medicine to stop the pain itself not fixing the root cause. First please talk to your GP, if you still have pain even though you are perfectly okay. Then please talk to your acupuncturist or traditional eastern medicine practitioner (It is called as Chinese Medicine Practitioner in Australia)


Acupuncture helps you by moving Energy and Blood  (氣 and 血) in your body to remove pain.

However, the internal organ might become weaker and weaker because the outer muscles are so big. To support outer muscles, we need a strong digestive system to absorb everything we eat.
